Lerobel in Hasselt, Belgium opts for the TPS®-4SG Technology from Bystronic glass
Standard insulating glass is now a thing of the past; the Lerobel Company is breaking new ground, and in the process astonishing even experienced Bystronic glass sales engineers. Company owner Yannick Leroi and his project manager Rudi Vaneyck discuss the co-operation with Bystronic glass and why they have placed their trust in the TPS®-4SG technology through a substantial investment.
In 1939, Yannick Leroi’s grandfather founded the Lerobel Group. Today the company is run by Yannick as a third generation family business with over 100 employees, and this year it will look forward to celebrating its 75th anniversary.
Lerobel is an independent glass processing company located in the Benelux region where the majority of its sales market is located. “Of course, we still produce standard insulating or laminated safety glass, but we realigned ourselves a long time ago,” says Yannick Leroi. “We’ve specialised in large-scale projects in the glass industry, and we’re often tasked with complex projects across Europe.”
“When sealing our large specialty glass products with silicone, we rely on the TPS® – 4SG system to guarantee gas-tightness.”

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”Read more

“Although our goal is to be one of the leading smart and safety glass manufacturers in Finland, we didn’t have the time needed to install a completely new furnace,” says Raiko Mäkeläinen, Technical Manager at Lasiliiri. “Instead, we went with a significant Glaston’s FC-zone upgrade, which enabled us to leapfrog to the very latest heating technology in a quick, cost-effective and sustainable manner.”Read more
